Vegan macarons

Ingredients

225g water (1)

375g white sugar

12g Sosa Potatowhip

100g water (2)

2g Sosa Gelespessa

2g Sosa burgundy colouring powder

200g Sosa Mix Macaron

Vegan raspberry filling

Ingredients

300g marzipan 50%

110g Leonce Blanc Raspberry Puree

18g raspberry liqueur

15g Sosa Freeze Dried Raspberry Powder

Method for macarons

Blend the potatowhip, gelespessa and water (1) making sure you don't leave any lumps.  Let it set in the fridge for 30 minutes. 

Divide half of the mixture. Combine the first half  with the macaron mix until you form a dough (marzipan).

With the remaining potato whip mixture whisk together with gelespessa in a Kitchen Aid bowl until you start forming a meringue.

Aside, add water (2) and the sugar to a sauce pan and bring the mixture up to 118ºC. Pour the syrup onto the meringue slowly, then whisk meringue until cold.

Once cold add the meringue to the marzipan mixture in 2-3 stages until a gentle dough is formed. Place the mixture into a piping bag and pipe onto a silicon mat.

Leave the mixture to rest and form a crust (dry to touch), then bake at 150ºC for 9 minutes. Once baked let them cool to room temperature and fill. 

Method for filling

Combine all the ingredients together in a bowl ensuring there are no lumps. Place in a piping bag and pipe on to one half of the macaron shell, then sandwich together with another shell and enjoy.
